Aquarius II cooling problem
I installed the aquarius II liquid cooling system, but for some reason it does not seem to be cooling right, the idle temp is at 44C in the bios ,which is much higher than when i had a regular heatsink on the cpu. I've triple checked all the connections and made sure the pump and the radiator fan are running properly . Does the amount of thermal compound used matter? , i new at this but i'd think the radiator would be much colder than it is. anyways if anyone could help id appreciate it thanks.
